Tulips have begun to arrive in my corner of the world. As the cheerful daffodils begin to fade, the stately tulips have taken center stage. They will be followed by other blooms. The reddish leaves in this picture are my peony bush, a treat from last Spring.
In another corner of the flowerbeds, a patch of hostas grows alongside the tulips that are getting ready to bloom.
In keeping with the theme of the past Winter, we’re having a cool Spring, with few days that have managed to creep over 70. Despite the chill, the Spring light in the mornings and at twilight is lovely. To me, the relative mildness of the air and the lingering daylight over newly bloomed flowers, trees and plants is downright magical.
